WHAT'S IN THE BOTTLE? Mashbuild Bourbon, Batch 1

Our first batch in a different approach to bourbon

When we set out to create our first Mashbuild bourbon, we had few ideas about what it should be. First, we loved the idea of aging our whiskey in a solera, where the flavors would be constantly evolving and where we could ultimately create a wide variety of expressions.

Second, we wanted our customers to understand EXACTLY what they were drinking. So we printed the breakdown of what was put in that batch right on the front of the label:

  • 6%: 17yr. old, 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% malted barley
  • 1%: 15yr. old, 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley
  • 4%: 13yr. old, 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% malted barley
  • 39%: 11 yr. old, 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% malted barley
  • 39%: 10 yr. old, 80% corn, 10% rye, 10% malted barley
  • 4%: 3yr. old, 100% Colorado sweet corn
  • 2%: 3yr. old, 100% Northeast bloody butcher corn
  • 5%: 2yr. old, 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% malted barley

In the solera aging process, as whiskey is used, barrels are backfilled with stock from the next layer up and new stock is added to the top layer. In this fashion, younger spirits take on more mature flavors and the average age of stock in the solera always increases over time.
